Service to America

“We want a society founded on service.”

                                    - Eugenia Washington, DAR Founder

 

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2015.  Since our 1890 founding, DAR members have worked tirelessly to promote historic preservation, patriotism, and educational ideals in communities across the nation and in Units Overseas.  Daughters honor their heritage as they “Celebrate America!” through combined community service efforts.  We are “Today’s DAR!”
 
 

Since 2013, our chapter has performed over 2800 hours of community service:

  • Placing wreaths at Cheltenham Veterans Cemetery with Weaths Across America
  • Jug Bay Walk for Wildlife at Patuxent River Park, Upper Marlboro, Maryland
  • "Puppy petting" at the Warrior Canine Connection
  • Transcribing tombstones at St. John’s Church Cemetery, Fort Washington, Maryland
  • Participating in the American Indian Festival
  • Cleaning up the grounds and front gate at Harmony Hall Manor
  • Working with Faith United Methodist Church, Accokeek, MD in assembling essentials bags for the homeless
  • Donating items to Andrews Attic*

 

*Andrews Attic is a 501(c)3 which operates a free thrift shop to serve active duty military, as well as full and part time National Guard and Reserve, in the rank of E-6 and below.  The Attic is not a military or government entity but a group of volunteers who serve our military population by operating this thrift shop supported by community donations and other non-profit donors.  They supply gently used household items, toys, linens, clothing, uniforms, electronics and books to help ease the financial burden of our enlisted families.  Every month they serve approximately 600 families.
